How to Change the Page in UTF-8 Dreamweaver 8


Unicode Transformation Format - 8 (UTF-8) uses 8-bit character encoding to display your Web page's data over the Internet. According to The Unicode Consortium website, "Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language." When you create a Web page in Dreamweaver 8, your Web page is saved with the encoding you specify in font preferences. Dreamweaver automatically inserts these settings into the META tag of your HTML code.
